Anyone know of one?
Ghostwalker has gotten X11 to run on Android for a while now. Google it and you should find some info, I know he put together a complete how-to a while back
Yeah, I saw that, but he's just trying to run linux on his phone.
A true X11 Server (in spite of its name) is actually the client side, the application you are viewing could be running on any 'nix computer anywhere in the world. You computer (or tablet) only has to supply screen and keyboard services to the application. (Hence the reason its is called a server even tho it runs client-side.)
Ghostwalker is using VNC to pretend that he has X11.
I had one for my old iphone, but it was too small to do any real work.
The Acer would make a great sysadmin tool.
